I had taken a 15 year break in home brewing, and last weekend I brewed a batch and put it into 5 gals in the carboy. I was planning on doing another batch this weekend so, I went to the attic to retrieve my 2nd carboy to clean and sanitize it. When in the attic I decided to take a look at my cases of bar bottles. In one of the boxes I opened to find this.

FIND A

FIND B

15 years to the day. Now that is STRANGE

I put 2 in the beverage cooler and after dinner I will give them a taste. "What do kill ya makes us strong", Right?

Anyway wish me luck. It had to be a sign.......

BTW..Check out those High Tech labels that I got there....cool huh?

Part of me hopes that it tastes like skunk pee instead of ambrosia so I'm not tempted to duplicate your aging process
